The Cen­ter for Art, New Ven­tures, and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment (Can­vas) will hold “The Au­thor’s Hour,” the launch of Eu­gene Evasco’s new chil­dren’s book, “Ang Aklatang Pusa,” on July 7, 10 a.m., at the ground floor of Var­gas Museum, Univer­sity of the Philip­pines, Dil­i­man, Que­zon City.

“Ang Aklatang Pusa” is the heart­warm­ing story of a re­tired li­brar­ian who, in­stead of col­lect­ing and cat­a­logu­ing books, col­lects cats.

The book is the win­ning story of the 12th Romeo Forbes Story Writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion.

“Au­thor’s Hour” will have a read­ing of the book and the au­thor ex­plain­ing the cre­ative process that went into his win­ning story.

Also in­cluded will be short talks about cats: how hav­ing them as pets could re­lieve one’s stress and how to take the per­fect pic­ture of one’s “purry” friend to “cat­tify” one’s so­cial me­dia.

“The Au­thor’s Hour” is part of “Tumba-Tumba Chil­dren’s Museum of Philip­pine Art: A Proof of Con­cept Ex­hibit.” The ex­hibit is co­p­re­sented by UP Var­gas Museum, and with sup­port of Panta Rhea Foun­da­tion and Blanc Gallery.
